1967 NOMAD MK1 - The only one in the world - Eligible for Classic Endurance Racing, Daytona Classic etc...

Technical specifications
Eligibility (click on the links)
The Nomad GT Mk1 is the only model of its kind in the world

The Mk1 was namely the first car built by the young British firm set up by Mark Konig and Bob Curl, formerly with Lotus. Only three racing cars were built by Nomad. Of these, the Mk1 is in fact the only coupé and it is by far the best-looking model, with the most impressive race record. After its first tests on the Lyddon Hill circuit, the new-comer was raced for the first time in 1967 at the Crystal Palace meeting. On numerous occasions, Konig chose to team up with Tony Lanfranchi. The Nomad truly deserved its name since the first three years of its life saw it taking part in a large number of races all over Europe and even crossing the Atlantic in 1968 to compete in the Daytona 24 Hours.

 
Its impressive race record includes:
  • Three participations in the Nürburgring 500 Kilometres and the Mugello GP,

  • Two participations in the Brands Hatch 6 Hours Race, the Targa Florio, the Paris 1000 Kilometres and the Nürburgring 1000 Kilometres

  • One participation in the Rheims 12 Hours Race, the Trophé d’Auvergne, the Imola 500 Kilometres, an entry for the 1968 Le Mans 24 Hours Race where it was given Number 73  but did not start the race, and one participation in the Daytona 24 Hours Race, as mentioned above.

 

The body, which was originally made entirely of aluminium, was designed by Bob Curl and built by the celebrated English coach-builder Williams & Pritchard. Over time, the body design underwent some slight changes. As early as 1968, the front and rear bonnets were modified and are now made of glass fibre, with the central part of the body still made of aluminium.

 

The multi-tubular chasis is robust and very well designed. Over the course of its life, the Nomad Mk1 has had several different engines. The original one was a 1600cc 4-cylinder Ford engine prepared by Chris Steele, mated to a Hewland MK9 gearbox. Its power was given as 175 bhp at 7800 rev/min. Its capacity was then raised to 1800cc, and finally the Nomad was given the fragile BRM V8 1500cc engine.

 

Today, the car is in perfect general and racing condition. Its 1800cc Ford Twin Cam engine, fully bench tested, delivers 192 hp. The car comes with a complete follow-up record, numerous maintenance invoices and a complete dossier, including the original car registration document in the name of Mark Konig.
